Brilliant maroon globes 4 inches in diameter.
95 days. This intermediate-day red onion is about the most beautiful sight beneath the garden soil, and certainly the most attention-getting on the plate. The 4-inch diameter onions have magenta-purple wrappers and crisp, super-sweet flesh that alternates maroon with pure white.

Red Candy Apple Hybrid lives up to its name with every bite. It is the sweetest of the sweet, yet has a crisp bite that makes for good eating, fresh or cooked. Packed with antioxidants, the bulbs are solid and firm, with great storage ability. Expect them to last 2 months after harvest if cured properly!

Intermediate-day onions are less sensitive to day-length than the traditional short- and long-day varieties, so they can be grown almost anywhere in the U.S. You will love the adaptability and ease of this gourmet treat! Sold in bunches of 5 dozen.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits.

Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants.
